Speech-language pathologists work with individuals of all ages, from pediatrics through to geriatrics, who are in need of assessment or treatment services in the areas of swallowing and communication. These needs may be through changes in their abilities resulting from an illness, an accident, a developmental problem or the aging process.
Speech-language pathologists are licensed health care professionals. They are trained at accredited universities and have Master's degrees (or equivalent).
